New Book: Of Champagne and Vidalia Onions

Relocating the Law of Geographical IndicationsHere in Georgia we are famed for our Vidalia onions – and we don’t want folks from other parts of the world claiming they also have “Vidalia” onions. While regional products are increasingly important for producers, consumers and policy makers, the international legal regime under the TRIPS Agreement remains unclear. Adopting a historical approach, author Dev Gangjee in the new book Relocating the Law of Geographical Indications explores the rules regulating these valuable geographical designations within international intellectual property law. He traces the emergence of geographical indications as a distinct category while investigating the key distinguishing feature of the link between regional products and their places of origin. The book is available for checkout in the Law Library Balcony K1562 .G36 2012 or can be previewed on SSRN.
